Blogging in EDA has been fun for me as well. I've spent a few decades working at EDA companies and when I went solo in 2004 as a consultant it was quite natural to start blogging. John Blyler of Chip Design Magazine asked me to start blogging for his magazine and I've used the platform to speak out about the trends that I see in EDA.
I've noticed that many EDA companies have started treating bloggers as extended members of the press by providing us with pre-announced Press Releases, invitations to speak with key staff, and of course special events at shows like DAC.
All the best to you at SNPS and I'll continue to read your blogs and tweets to stay informed.
